    [–] Chernobyl | Official Trailer for the HBO Miniseries ElBalubaerMOFO 0 points ago in videos

    No, even Germany is still affected. I lived in southern Germany, about 20% of the hunted boars have to be destroyed due to radioactivity more than 30 years past Cheenobyl. Here is a news source.

    [–] Karen Uhlenbeck Is the First Woman to Win Math’s Top Prize ElBalubaerMOFO 21 points ago in EverythingScience

    Different things. Fields medal is less money, can only be won prior to 40, but is only given out every fourth year, making it a rarer price. Abel prize is much closer to the Nobel price for other disciplines (i.e., usually given at late career stages) and is more money. So I would say the headline is correct.

    and another one i like from back then: Efdemin - Bergwein

    [–] Are we the only animal to predominantly use one arm/hand? ElBalubaerMOFO 23 points ago in askscience

    That observed lateralization is more common in captive apes could well be an artifact of having better data in captive apes and the blog post your are quoting is based on outdated information (more than 15 years old). Handedness seems to vary by species of apes, contradicting that it may be learned (Hopkins et al., J Hum Evol, 2011).

    Not only hand preference, but even emotional speech appears lateralized in other mammals: dogs tilt their heads to the right (suggesting left-dominant processing) when they hear semantically correct (not in incorrect) and action relevant human speech. If they are given the same semantically correct commando in an unknown language (french for a British dog), the effect is not present. However, they turn their heads leftwards (right-dominant processing) when they are melodically praised, suggesting that even language itself is lateralized: emotional processing seems right-dominant even in dogs (source: Ratcliffe & Raby, Current Biology, 2014).

    [–] Spectacular vertical take off MIG 29 ElBalubaerMOFO 1 points ago in holdmyredbull

    Where did you find that? The 787 weighs about 280k lbs and has2x70k thrust. Not even all fighter jets have a thrust to weight ratio > 1. video is a steep incline, in no way vertical.

    [–] Something is seriously wrong with Donald Trump: Let's stop kidding ourselves about that ElBalubaerMOFO 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in politics

    Yes, fMRI has a very poor signal to noise ratio. It is rather a tool for research than being used for diagnoses on an individual level. Edit: Think about fMRI as measuring tiny changes in the degree of oxygen in a brain region (when oxygen is consumed, the vessels open up and provide more fresh blood -> this causes a tiny change in the MR signal). You need many repetitions of this signal for a reliable effect and in most cases either multiple scan sessions from one subject or multiple subjects are needed to interpret the data.

    Structural MRI, rather than functional MRI, is much more clinically relevant. You could not see much in an individual's fMRI that would relate to the president's pathology.

    [–] Can You Trust Kurzgesagt Videos? - YouTube ElBalubaerMOFO 1 points ago in videos

    Thank you! The video and the super positive discussion on reddit got me really frustrated. Ratpark is such a bad study, somewhat similar to the autism vs vaccination debate: One source, source is debunked, but people still want to believe...

    [–] The hero who helped create the video game industry as we know it ElBalubaerMOFO 0 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Because his invention is relatively irrelevant compared to CD, DVD, ROM or most other storage devices. Do you know the name of the inventors of these? I don‘t :)

    [–] The hero who helped create the video game industry as we know it ElBalubaerMOFO 1 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Yes, I can respond to you if you ask specifics about GR (general relativitiy) after googling. The actual question implyied if you can name them from your head. Thanks.

    Appreciate your amazing skills of incorporating priors (prejudice), data (visual input), to form a posterior (a biased statement). So, he looks line an engineer? Is can you tell me more?

    As a european, what is black history month? Do you actively search for contributions of black people in your history in school? Just genuinely asking, as this seems strange to me.

    [–] The hero who helped create the video game industry as we know it ElBalubaerMOFO 0 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Thanks, you are pretty good at googling and using wiki. Did you respond to the question, though?

    [–] The hero who helped create the video game industry as we know it ElBalubaerMOFO 6 points ago in Damnthatsinteresting

    Honestly, why? This was a nice invention for a time that did not stand the test of it (time). So, apart from our collective nostalgia, what is remarkable? It was a nice invention, we (Generation y) liked it. Do we praise the inventor of the floppy disk? The game pad? The first vga? seems random to pick this dude right here and make a racial debate out of it.

    [–] China's Chief Negotiator Literally Laughs In Donald Trump's Face During Trade Talk ElBalubaerMOFO 1 points ago in politics

    Yeah, probably his phrasing was too abstract. He would have needed to say: "Boss, you are totally right! It is just that in this tiny diplomatic world the phrase MOU refers to something else than in the big make money money business world."

    [–] China's Chief Negotiator Literally Laughs In Donald Trump's Face During Trade Talk ElBalubaerMOFO 0 points ago in politics

    In his defense, the term MOU is used widely in business and usually is a non-binding agreement there. In contrast, MOUs in international politics are binding agreements. So from his perspective as a business man, he is correct. But we would expect the POTUS to have gathered the basics of international politics by now...

    [–] Insects could vanish within a century at current rate of decline, says global review ElBalubaerMOFO 13 points ago in science

    That is what I thought as well, there were so many of them. Even when I account for the fact that I spend much less time in nature than as a kid, I am still actively looking for them and they have become a rare sigh (speaking for central Europe).
